Scratches on hooves?

Ok, I am not sure where to post this. It could be health, maybe tack? However, I figured I would just start here. If it needs to be moved feel free. :)

I noticed after I rode the other day that my horse had some marks on the front of her back hooves. Does this mean she is scraping them as she goes? Or are her front feet scraping the back somehow, or I am I just reading into nothing?

Does your horse wear shoes in the front and were they just done? Did you notice it right after you rode or a couple of days later? I kind of doubt that it is from the front hooves though. It isn't something that I would worry to much about. It could have happened if she was in a stall or turned out and could be hard to figure out why it happened. Just my opinion.
